About Nick


Bio

My name’s Nick and I’m currently on a gap year before attending Pomona College intending to study physics and math! In the summer before senior year I taught myself the content and techniques required to excel on the SAT and ACT. In that time I definitely could’ve benefitted from a tutor so I want to use my knowledge to help others that are in the same spot. After scoring in the 99th percentile on both the SAT and ACT I tutored my friends who all saw improvements in their score. Even though...

My name’s Nick and I’m currently on a gap year before attending Pomona College intending to study physics and math! In the summer before senior year I taught myself the content and techniques required to excel on the SAT and ACT. In that time I definitely could’ve benefitted from a tutor so I want to use my knowledge to help others that are in the same spot. After scoring in the 99th percentile on both the SAT and ACT I tutored my friends who all saw improvements in their score. Even though I’m on a gap year, I’m still eager to continue learning and help others along their education journey :))

I studied SAT math over the summer and only missed two math questions on my last SAT. I’m familiar with the formulas and applications needed to score a 750+.

I took AP physics, chem, bio, and enviro in high school and have a generally strong background in science and comprehension of scientific texts. This allowed me to score a 35 on the science section of the ACT.

I read quite a lot and am familiar with the strategies needed to only miss one or two questions on these sections. I scored a 35 on the reading/writing on the ACT and a 760 on reading/writing on the SAT.

If you have any questions or interest in welcoming me as a tutor feel free to reach out! I have a very flexible schedule at the moment.
